This exceptional mid 1930's semi-detached family home enjoys a most convenient position and sits on a delightful plot of the corner of Courtney Way and Metcalfe Road. The property has been incredibly well cared for and has undergone much improvement since it was purchased by the owners over seventeen years ago.
The property is entered by an original stained glass door and opens into a spacious entrance hall, which has room for coats and footwear and is finished with attractive Amtico flooring, which continues through the main reception area and kitchen. The bay fronted sitting room benefits from a dual aspect and there is also a working open fireplace . There is a generous dining room with a working open fireplace and built-in shelving with a door leading to a double glazed conservatory combining as a utility area with fitted units, double doors and delightful views of the rear garden. The kitchen, which has been fitted with an attractive range of base and eye-level units, benefits from a dual aspect and a number of integrated appliances. Completing the ground floor is a refitted cloak room w.c.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, all of which are comfortable doubles. The master bedroom and bedroom 3 include built-in storage cupboards. The landing provides access to the loft, which is partially boarded and there is a separate bathroom and w.c. both fitted with stylish suites and complemented by attractive tiling.
Outside, the front of the property is nicely set back behind a low brick wall with an iron gate, pathway leading to the main entrance . There is a front garden which is stocked with an array of mature plants, shrubs and trees. The driveway is located at the foot of the garden and accessed through a secure gate via Metcalfe Road. The rear garden offers a superb degree of privacy and due to the nature of being on a corner plot, it is much broader than most gardens in the area. The garden is principally laid to lawn and bordered with a variety of bushes, shrubs and trees including a superb apple tree. There is a timber framed garage located at the foot of the garden serving as a useful storage area and could also potentially be converted into a studio or home office. The width of the plot offers scope for side and rear extensions as well as loft conversion, subject to the necessary consents and there would also be an option for a larger parking area at the bottom of the garden without compromising the plot or outlook. The charm, condition and position of this family home demands an early viewing.
